Just Completed the Most Gorgeous Event Ever Done by BAP


Thank you very much to all the respected community members and guests for your kind support and participation in the recent Eid Reunion Event. We hope that every one of you had an amazing experience with the two best performers from Bangladesh, Miles and Naveed Mahbub. It would not have been possible without your presence as well as the support from sponsors and our outstanding volunteers. The relentless work and support from these dedicated volunteers were the key to the success of this program. We are also seeking your kind forgiveness for small unintentional and unavoidable errors.

Rashidul Monsur Palash, thank you for staying with us all the way to fulfill the dream of bringing Miles- hats off to you! 
The technical team, led by Masud Khandoker Bhai, Mohammad Hossain Sumon and Ronnie Choudhury , did an amazing job to have all musical instruments ready for the show on time. Rashidul Haque Bhai was outstanding in negotiating and corresponding with officials of the venue with reasonable rates and helping to manage sound, lights, etc. with Arif Mahmud Bhai.
